A week in southern France in the company of Kevin Du Rose, Graham Catley and John Wright wasn't especially productive for photos though some excellent birds were seen. The weather was perhaps to blame for the lack of photo opportunities with strong, icy winds being uncomfortable conditions for both us and the birds.
Perhaps should have taken more of these as the rest of the lads got some alright shots of this rather special bird wintering at Les Baux. There only appeared to be one present and it was rather mobile and I was never in the right place at the right time to really nail it unfortunately. The strong wind on top of Les Baux meant that all the Alpine Accentors were sheltering in impossible to reach places so didn't even get any shots of these usually soft targets.
